Tintin Comes to Home Video
March 1, 2012

This month brings the famous young explorer to Blu-ray and DVD in two ways.

(Digression: I’ve been engaging in various icebreakers this week with remote work colleagues. When I mentioned I review comic books, an Indian-born coworker asked me if I knew Tintin. We in the US still don’t get just how famous the Herge works are internationally, I think.)

Following up their release of Season One late last year, Shout! Factory is bringing The Adventures of Tintin: Season Two to DVD on March 20. In 13 episodes (most of them two-parters) on two discs, the stories on this set include

  • The Shooting Star
  • The Broken Ear
  • King Ottokar’s Sceptre
  • Tintin in Tibet
  • Tintin and the Picaros
  • Land of Black Gold
  • Flight 714

The set includes the English language track, the Spanish language track, and closed-captioning.

A week earlier, the big-budget theatrical release The Adventures of Tintin will be available from Paramount. Its use of CGI motion capture put some off, but fans will enjoy the movie-length featurette in 11 parts covering the making of the movie.

I’ve seen it, and the movie. I get it. But much like soccer, I just don’t care all that much because it’s so boring. Why couldn’t Spielberg and Jackson do a Blacksad movie instead? ;)
